I started playing the game when Alara was just about to rotate out and Rise of the Eldrazi was about to be released, and stopped playing after the Mirrodin block was released. I am looking to get back into the game with the release of Gatecrash. What Cards/Decks are good in Type 2? What is going to be good in Modern?
Type2 is now called Standard

check out the decks of the week
they are all the winning decks from MTGO tournaments, and sometimes also from selected paper tournaments

Here is another good page to look at what decks are being played in tournaments:

Standard: magic.tcgplayer.com/standard_deck_hq.asp
Modern: magic.tcgplayer.com/db/deck_search_resul...

Also, if you haven't found it already, there is a FAQ on rule changes specifically intended for returning players, which is available here.
